Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum

Operated by the State of Illinois, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum differs from most presidential libraries in that its collecting scope covers all of Illinois history, as well as Abraham Lincoln. Holdings include 275,000 books, 11.3 million items of manuscript materials, more than 99,000 rolls of microfilm, and 480,000 audiovisual items. Collection strengths include Illinois history and politics, labor history, the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln, Native Americans and ethnic groups in Illinois, and genealogy. The library was established in 1889 as the Illinois State Historical Library. Contributions to the Internet Archive include materials on Illinois in the Civil War, the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, and other materials related to nineteenth and early twentieth-century Illinois.
